and with all the other great cities of the world in a sister city relationship so dearly, we learn from each other, we send delegations to each other, we welcome each other to the city but in each and every instance, we are always thinking about ideas about how we can help each other and help regions improve, so i am excited to have met with the mayor just a few minutes ago to reaffirm our relationship and we'll sign that in a few moments to document that and to promise each other that we will continue this very great relationship and we could not have done it without the involvement of our private citizens, tom horn has led a fantastic group of volunteers on our sister city committee for paris and san francisco, and he's doing a marvelous job and this again reflects how our citizenry helps our city become a better city with these sister city relationships and again i want to thank you and the audience too who are volunteers in our -- i really, really thank you from the bottom of my heart for creating such a great part of our soul of our cities, and giving us the reasons why we can be an in
being evicted out of the city of san francisco in terms of the laws that they lay, what they're, the arrogance of their position. when you have the residents go before them because they are not being, they are not under the eye of observation. then you really see the bad side of why you need to bring this organization to the light where they could be observed. i think it's a good thing but by the same, we need it done like 25 years ago. >> thank you. >> thank you very much. next speaker. >> my name is [inaudible] ladies and gentlemen. the history goes back to 25 years ago to the housing authority and my statement i have been using at your commission for years, ain't no mystery, check your history. ladies and gentlemen, there's deeper history in what we're talking about with the city government channel. i'm the one that started that, i'm not going to get the hand for that because of same things the housing authority tenants went through 20 years ago. ladies and gentlemen, i am happy, tickled not pink by black right now because most of the tenants are african-americans. i stand

the exact same problems of people asking for more and more people and creating a city where there is very wealthy and very poor people. so i would like to give a quick shout out in that direction to supervisor olague, who is having the san francisco housing authority try to film its meetings. it doesn't even meet at city hall and this is the kind of inequity i'm talking about. we need accountability. so i appreciate that and we need that. thank you. >> thank you, mr. everett. >> i'm the type the progressive who grieves believes that we're only as wealthy as the least among us. so means that in san francisco we can only go as far as the african-american young men and women who have been economically disadvantaged for generations here in the city. we need to provide jobs. with when we talk about green jobs of future and sustainable produce, we need to talk about how to feed the single mothers in those communities. we need comprehensive reforms to bring those disadvantaged communitis with us. we cannot provide those folks with jobs unless we reform our drug policies in san francisco, wh
of the 3000 people but passed away in 1906 from the devastating earthquake, but the rebirth of our city is with us. i have been in all of these other positions where we are always prepared. and we are already engaged in recovery efforts. we were there with a whole staff. we have six we assure you that when the next big event happens, that water system will be there for us to deliver water with that 24 hours. a huge change from depending on this fountain. we are handing it off to generations of youth in the city to understand -- make sure they're prepared. go to our website, it tells you all the things there. iti is about having those items prepared.w we will survive. that is how we get ready and celebrate and honor the people who left us and make sure our city is ready. thank you for being here. congratulations to our survivors. >> very nice job. behind me is a good friend and a great firechief. you go back 106 years. braxton morning. -- good morning. one of the survivors could not be with us. those are amazing changes. it does give us the opportunity to remember what happened. we comme
is down. a variety of entertainment is what makes our city great. we will touch on the upcoming party legislation -- party bus legislation and a safe place for our youth to go. after our panel discussion will have some regard groups so we can share ideas and brainstorm. we have a very luminary panel here. right now, i would like to introduce our cheap -- chief of police. [applause] >> good afternoon. i also am not john newlin, and i have less hair than him. [laughter] is a pleasure to be here for the second year. there are fewer people here. that might be because it has been a good year. as audrey suggests i believe that is because of partnership is up. we want to be a police department that you are comfortable calling before anything happens with out fear of having us say, no, we are going to shut it down. we want to work with you to make it happen, but it means as safely as possible. certainly, alcohol always played a role as well as the age of the patrons, and on and on. again, please give us a chance to further develop the trust that we have been building over the last several yea
development and forest city. >> regarding the water front site and the city develop. as you know for the past several months, forest city has been working very hard on the due diligence process for the 25 acres working with them to understand the various soils and water conditions on the site and other information that will feed into for the infrastructure and the plans that they will present to you all at a subsequent meeting. there is also, begun, an extensive out reach program to get feedback from dog pest community and other key stake holders that will also feed into their planning and the eventual plans that they will make available to you. the plans builds on the experience that they have and mixed development throughout the country, but specifically, related to their efforts in san francisco, and their admission and development that has a similar approach and will have a good, prototype for the kind of things that they want to do at the pier 70. >> in addition, i wanted to talk just briefly about the hill site. now the hill site has not been offered for development. we are not moving f
for employees who spend less for their employees health care than what the city believes is adequate? >> yes. i think it's important that we continue in this direction. i was one of those persons who grew up -- i mean my grandmother raised me and my brothers and she worked as a maid and couldn't afford health care. and luckily we had medicare and we were able to go to the doctor and the dentist. i still have my same dentist who has been my dentist since i actually had teeth. i just think it's great that kids and people who don't have access to health care have access to health care. we need to look at ways to move into that direction and i think san francisco has definitely led the way for our president to move forward with obamacare and i'm excited about that and i think we can find more innovative ways to fund this. part of that is taking the fees from the employers who have those fees who aren't using it for reimbursement and other costs that we take those fees and use them for appropriate purposes. >> mr. resignato. >> thank you chris for the health question, i
regions in the south bay and east bay would not share. would you support san francisco using city taxpayer dollars to pay mtc for the cost of providing free muni service to young people in san francisco? in other words, if mtc isn't willing to do it on its own, should the city be paying more money into mtc to get the service out of mtc? >> as a last resort. that would be certainly the last way of funding it that i would look at. there is a continuity problem between the different transportation agencies that make it a little bit unworkable. at this present time i think one of the ways to deal with the issue is to see if the nuts and bolts of it can be tweaked a little bit to make it into a workable solution. maybe that may take a little bit more time, but i don't think as a sort of knee-jerk reaction we need to put the burden on taxpayers. with that being said it's vitally important for people to get around and especially those who can't afford and if you are a young person, i think that is a very important consideration as well. again, the focus should be on tweaking the nuts and bolts
director of the san francisco fleet week association. and make no mistake about it, the city and county of san francisco are supporter of the united states military. san francisco fleetwood association is a nonprofit all volunteer organization that was formed to help organize and execute fleet week. and fleet week in 2012 like 2011 and 2010 has adopted a mission to promote the humanitarian assistance and disaster response missions of the united states military. we also, of course, will have the blue angels and the air show that comes with that. the ships will be coming in and the wonderful liberty call that the wonderful men and women in the armed forces will have in san francisco. the fleet week association also, as i say, has a humanitarian and response. along with the civilian disaster response community, we'll have a senior leader seminar taking place on thursday and friday in which the military and the civilian community learn from one another on how to provide disaster response. i should mention that on wednesday morning out at ocean beach, the marine corps and the navy are settin
facility that has an integrated swimming pool and recreation center combined. we have to pools, the city's water slide, for little kids and those of you that are more daring and want to try the rockslide, we have a drop slide. >> exercises for everybody. hi have a great time. the ladies and guys that come, it is for the community and we really make it fun. people think it is only for those that play basketball or swim. >> i have been coming to the pool for a long time now. it is nice, they are sweet. >> in the aquatics center, they are very committed to combining for people in san francisco. and also ensuring that they have public safety. >> there are a lot of different personalities that come through here and it makes it very exciting all the time. they, their family or teach their kids have a swim. >> of the gem is fantastic, there is an incredible program going on there, both of my girls have learned to swim there. it is a fantastic place, check it out. it is an incredible indication of what bonn dollars can do with our hearts and facilities. it is as good as anything you will find ou
that. i really feel that city hall and residents and students and small businesses just need to have a much less adversairal relationship and i know that is very generalized. i am interested in making things easier for homeowners and students and visitors and one of the things coming up a lot in this campaign is public financing and i have taken a stand from the very beginning they would not accept 1 dollar in public financing money. not that i oppose it per se but these are hundreds and thousands of dollars and we are losing money and candidates are spending it on consultants in walnut creek or in san jose and one way is to keep money here in san francisco by changing the system. >> mr. crawlly same question. what in your opinion is the single most policy issue in san francisco and if elected what would you do to address it? >> well, there are several and i believe that if i am elected supervisor the first thing i will deal with is public safety. as you know there are 344 police officers that are retiring by next november. in this year's budget there are approximately three class
of 77,000 of the city's interest in easement located at 14 07 0 1435 market street. >> colleagues, can we do this item same house, same call? this ordinance is finally passed. next item. >> item 9 is an ordinance amending the planning code adding a new section to increase the transit impact development fee rates, revise the exemptions and credits, and clarify the implementation and collection. >> supervisor wiener. >> i'd like to move to continue this two weeks to october 16th. >> supervisor wiener has made a motion to continue this item to the 16th of october. seconded by supervisor olague. colleagues, without objection, that shall be the case. item 10. >> item 10 is a resolution approving updated security provisions for the america's cup lease disposition agreement. >> colleagues, can we do this same house same call? without objection, this resolution is adopted. item 11. >> item 11 is a resolution approving a contract with new flyer america, inc., to purchase 45 low floor diesel hybrid buses in an amount not to exceed appro 36.9 million. ximately>> supervisor wiener. >> thank you, m
that the city has leased space to in our parks. and parks and recreation is for parks and recreation and not necessarily should be a place where we are leasing space to more vendors than we particularly need in specific areas. there is a place for vendors, for food vendors for various vendors in certain areas of the parks, but i think we are focusing way too much time on trying to figure out how we generate revenue for the city more so than we are trying to figure out how to make sure that those uses are good uses for the people who use the parks . >> julian davis here. you know, i think we're seeing somewhat of a crisis in our parks and recreation department. i found that the department is severely mismanaged. we have synthetic fields going we have privatization and commercialization of our park spaces. we have rec directors being fired and park patrol officers being hired. we have onerous fees for access to community space, pricing community events out of our park spaces. the question is about whether particular conditions and limits we would put, i will give you a little sense of
could use that revenue to fund our public schools and restore jtor city college. >> thank you, miss selby. >> two of the things that are being done this november and i would love for to you vote for both of them, 30 and 38. those are two measures that would raise money for education and money in education is in dire straits. it's okay to vote for both. i also do support gross receipts. and i'm a small business person, and i wanted to let you all know that i have done sort of looked what i pay now $9,000. i have seven employees and i pay $9,000 a year and i will pay $750. so for small businesses the gross receipts actually does help and does not put the burden on the little guy and it is progressive and so it does become progressively as you make more money. many one concern with small businesses there are businesses out there that have a lot of gross receipts, but they have no profit. and this is something that the only thing that concerns about those two things. finally i would be okay with reinstating the vehicle license fee at the levels it was before. >> thank you. candidate j
gardner. gary tended to the gardens of the filbert steps, which is one of our city's great hidden treasures for more than three decades. and he took care of the sprawling garden as a volunteer. it was truly a labor of love for him and he was never paid a dime for t. he worked his hearts -- poured his heart into his work to create a clean, green and serene space that many in my neighborhood and throughout the city have grown to love and appreciate. in addition to caring for gardens, he was also someone who was dedicated to our city's architectural heritage and was a co-founder of san francisco victorian a which is a designer and manufacturer of victorian ornamentation. the entire telegraph hill community and many people in san francisco will miss him. i'm also introducing today, colleagues, a resolution to join 36 other cities in calling for our nation's environmental protection act agency and the obama administration to use the clean air act to make meaningful rapid cuts in greenhouse gas pollution. in the state of california, los angeles, berkeley, sanity monica, oxnard, santa cr
for real estate. even as the city negotiates for extensions of leases and renewals we are finding prices of buildings we have been previously leasing are going up tremendously. i understand the tightness of the market. i'm not as family with daly city or with the peninsula. i think i need more information to be convinced on this lease. san francisco i understand. * given the value of real estate and value of site you own, i'm curious as from your interest point you want to lock in the sfmta ten years. given the fact the value of this property could go up why it is in prologis's interest to lock in when you may find a tenant that has the ability to pay far more than the city of san francisco. >> that is a great question. it is an analysis we constantly do in our very high demand areas like the city of san francisco. but the decision i made was to provide the certainty of this investment. locking it into a longer term. most groups that we were talking with were interested in a longer term, because it is very challenging. if we decided to go for a shorter term, it is very tough to pinpoint
-- [laughter] i will be given my season tickets up when i leave the city. i had them for over 40 years. they're gone but with that said i started two successful businesses in san francisco. i have a childrens' foundation "one children at a time inc." and did jobs around the world and every nickel i raised go to helping the kids. i will bring a strong budget control initiative to san francisco and i will show it by opening my district office in either on ocean avenue, lake side, and out of the money they give i will take a part of that fund and pay for that office in san francisco, but i will open it in the district so i will serve the people. bob squirey. i appreciate your support. >> thank you. mr. rogers. >> i am glen rogers and a native son of san francisco. i went to school here wanting to do public service and i went to sonoma state and majored in sociology and when i graduated i joined the peace corps in afghanistan. after returning i saw some lovely places and i wanted to be a landscape architect. i went to colpolly pomona and encouraged me to get involved in politics. i have b
, it also includes this limited live provision. we have determined in the city that this legislation is good -- good legislation. there's no conditional use requirement to have this. a lot of people today want to have food, drink, and be able to have some music. how can we get the limited live entertainment excluded from the know amplified or no live entertainment excluded on the transfers? >> that is going to mostly driven locally. most of the conditions you'll ever see on an abc license are because we rely, to a great extent, on the police department and local officials to determine what is best for their communities. i'm not trying to pin this on you guys or blame you guys, but we do try to work with you. we do not tend to want to overrule the police department very often. now that said, i get a fair number of petitions and appeals to me. typically, they are from the neighbors. i want to see that there is actually a practical problem posed -- that the condition is there to solve, not that this is the way the things have been or maybe there's someone who is satisfied by what is potentially
's the city's plan, so we did not comment specifically on that, but otherwise, i'm very happy to address any other questions or if you have any issues. er >> thank you, mr. black, colleagues, any questions, okay, thank you, so those are all the presentations we have, i want to thank all the speakers from the departments for your comments and responses. we'll now proceed to public comment. i have -- supervisor compos? >> if i may, mr. khai, i know we have a worker, i was wondering if it would be okay to call upon him so he could testify, and that is graciano, yes. >> that's at the top of the pile, i have four speaker cards here, if i don't call your name and you would like to speak, please fill out a speaker card, i'm going to call graciano, rebecca and glen bare row. is there any other public other than those five, six? okay, great, so each speaker will have two minutes with 30 seconds left, you will hear a soft bell and then a loud bell when your time is up, so mr. vasquez. >> supervisors, good afternoon, everyone. i've come here this afternoon to tell you about problems that i've had with
that it really will literally drive people out of the area and down to south city or some other area in which people want to come to this part of town for the small town experience that we have and shopping in westportal or walking around getting lunch at ocean or some place like that, but it's also speaks to something i mentioned earlier. it's another way that city hall is butting heading with residents and businesses. when residents feel threatened by the government they don't trust the government and we need less of the head butting and yes the city needs money but we can't do it on the backs of small business and the threats to residents and i completely oppose the meters on sundays and late nights. >> mr. crowley. >> in district seven i think it's necessary to dismiss this idea all together and let's not forget the holidays and they hit them as well. a one size approach doesn't fit this and i suggest the parking lots at the ball field and we do dynamic pricing and that is one solution that is dense and know they're going to pay for parking and looking for solutions to fit their car in
are looking, not in every neighborhood city, but in other neighborhood cities to do projects consider joining the neighborhood bmr program. we need units to enter that program. when the economy is slow and new units aren't being added through the mayor's office of housing something like this is really an interesting approach, particularly in a neighborhood that does not have a lot of -- that has a lack of economic diversity. >> commissioner hillis. >> if i can ask a question of staff. the issue of this -- establishing these units as bmr didn't come up in your report. is this something that came up after? >> we did discuss the rent control thing and try to keep them affordable. i'm going to defer to the city attorney, though. there has to be some sort of nexus if you make that requirement. and i don't think we could find that at the staff level. >> fine. [speaker not understood]. has anybody talked about it? are they open to it, administering additional bmr units? i would imagine they are. has that been discussed at all? it is highly unusual, this kind of approach. >> we haven't had any conver
the city and the transportation authority as part of our needs assessment or future needs assessment, what it will take to achieve. our gas and reduction goals. so, the region is very dependent on san francisco to address a significant part of the region's growth and transportation challenge. so, we need to determine how to manage these 400,000 plus new daily auto trips. we know that there is not much low-hanging fruit. everything involves a trade-off. and that we need to do things differently to meet this challenge. we know that also that a lot of the growth in san francisco is going to happen in the city's core, the soma, the mission bay, and new auto trends in neighborhoods are going to counteract our efforts to improve new travel times, [speaker not understood]. we know that it's going to take new ways of doing things, such as leveraging the private sector investment, between the core and the south bay. [speaker not understood]. where do we put new capacity and how much new capacity, and how much reallocating right away is it going to take. we analyze that it would take to actually ac
say the employee acted in good faith. he went to the city attorney, and the city attorney said, you don't need to produce them. >> i think by -- we are not trying to eliminate these. these would all be under the heading of what is relevant. they would be part of the relevant circumstances surrounding the case. the question is whether to enumerate some of them here that we've anticipated as possible defenses. we don't eliminate the explanation or defense if we don't list it here. the question is if it's useful to say that is one of the circumstances that would be appropriate to raise. >> and i think you are both right. actually. i don't think it limits the affirmative defense. i think the problem is some of these are not affirmative. the only factor is a penalty. commissioner hayon. >> they are circumstances but not defenses. >> i don't feel strongly if we want to end it surrounding the case and limiting everything beyond. but i have a different issue. >> okay. >> there seems to be a gap. if we decide to refer the show-cause hearing to one commissioner. we don't say what he or she is
the patient gift fund. mr. shaw is accurate here that deputy city attorney jerry made an error in his memo, instruction al memo and it's easy to make that error because we had two whistle blower complaints, one a conflict of city interest and one miss appropriation of patient funds from the gift fund and mr. freight mixed those up and this request for documents related to a complaint of the gift fund, miss appropriations does not have anything to do with conflict of interest. speaker: war field, i am very disappointed that at nine forty at night we learn that something that was known at the beginning of the meeting is cause for skipping an item on the agenda. perhaps the chair thought that he would be reading mr. shaws letter and analyzing it some time during the meeting. from what i know, i doubt it. my sense of him is that he's attempting to be thorough and fair so i'm very disappointed that this couldn't have been announced at the very beginning of the meeting. thank you. speaker: can i get public comment on my own item, two minutes of your time? speaker: i would like to apologize to yo
form to the olse, with regards to finding number 9, disagree, the city and county does not know employees and employers using those, similarly there is no data between the differing reimbursement rates, the board of supervisors made amendments and believes they will help increase reimbursement rates and other reimbursement programs. finding number 10, partially disagree, the board of supervisors defers to olse's response, finding number 1 1, partially disagree, time limits are standardized. finding number 12, partially disagree, the board of supervisors refers to the response of the city attorney, the city attorney agrees that hra's may not be an allowable option o under the affordable care act, this question will be answered definitively by forthcoming regulations. finding number 13, disagree partially. under the previous law, this could be have been a case under the recent amendment ts, this issue was addressed in a var iet of ways including posting and quarterly notice requirements so employees are aware of their benefits and how to use them and by requiring all unused monies
if needed once it goes to city hall. now i was told that oakland city administrator will meet with council members and advise them on ways to prevent another shut down. the city council members would not provide us any details on. >> we have new rules but we're not enforcing them, that's why i think it got to the level that it got. >> reporter: now there's several private security guards walking around oakland city hall today. once again we're on our way. the march is on again. people are back out here gathering. we've seen 30 to 40 people out here getting ready to march to city hall. there's a group already at city hall taking part of a protest there. we will march with this group and if something breaks we will bring it to you. if not we will see you tonight at 6:00 for the meeting. until then, paul chambers, ktvu news. >>> ktvu's rita williams with what appears to be a disturbing trend after five shootings in just days. >> reporter: oakland has seen spikes before but this one is dramatic. four killed in oakland in just nine hours, statistics to some, to others the loss of real people
and civic order ends in disorder. what's next after another wild night at oakland city hall. and on the eve of obama, romney, round one. which candidates can claim the highest television rattings and which vp candidate gets honorable mention? i'm ken bastida. >> and i'm dana king. there has been a huge spike in the gas pump and it happened overnight. kit doe on the reasons why gas stations are pushing a 10 to 30- cent jump. fill her up, kit. >> reporter: dana, in a simple supply, demand economics. a number of refineries shut down for a various number of reasons. one of which is the heat. >> the record heat that has been sweeping was apparently too much for the power grid in southern california. the exxon mobile refinery shut down yesterday after the facility lost power. gasbuddy.com says the heat caused a transformer at a nearby substation to malfunction. combine that with the refinery in richmond, and you have yet another perfect storm for high gas prices. the wholesale cost shot up $1.06 in one week. by friday, retail prices could spike 30 cents. if it keeps up, station owners will hav
: resolution authorizing lease of 255,420 rentable square feet at bayshore boulevard, daly city, california from prolog *f sl.p. for a 20-year term plus two five-year extensions at rent of $2,449,642 with annual increases for san francisco municipal transportation agency's towed car operations and other services. >> for this we have ed with the mta and sinaly. >> good afternoon, ed riskos, transportation director. i want to thank you for shuffling the agenda to accommodate this item, which is of great importance to the agency, which is why i wanted to be here so you could hear from my firsthand about it. what is before you is a resolution that would approve a leaswe have been seeing quite sometime that would solve a number of challenges we are currently facing. therefore it is very important to the agency. we have a wide array of assets in the mta across the city that we use to operator all the modes of transit that we operator, or transportation that we're responsible for, the lion's share which of course is muni. because of the diversity and age and condition of the assets, the real estat
find jobs. so jobs has been a huge priority for us. trying to find -- trying to work with city agencies, with community-based organizations, to make sure that young people, especially, have opportunities to make choices in their lives. and so that is why we have been focused very much on job-training and wrap-around services in that respect also. i think there are older adults and other folks who also could use additional employment. so i think jobs is a big issue for me. >> miss johnson? >> i agree that it's difficult to pick just one issue. but i think a lot of our policy issues that we're having, that you have in front of us come from a lack of accountable. where is your money being spent? how is it being spent? there is a lot of mismanagement. and there is a lot of money that goes places we don't know where it's going. and you can see it running through all of this discussion of all of the polices. are our elected officials making policy decisions that are sustainable? that promote equity? or are they for-sale to the highest bidder? these are the things that we need t

of the cities that we have -- that we did not know about if we could have approached that property owner about purchasing it. >> of course not. i don't think anyone can do that for you. >> final question for the broker. you said earlier the city can always get out because you can sublease, right? but the difference there is that if the market goes down, right, the sublease could be potentially for a lot less money than what the city is guaranteed to pay prologis, right? >> there is always that possibility in any lease. given the contraction of available space for that kind of use, the chances are little to none that you are going to see that. in fact, today if the property was openly marketed it would bring more rent and certainly a lot more money than what was paid for it. just look at what is happening in our city on mid market street and what people are paying for buildings that sat vacant in ten years. we are in a whole new marketplace we haven't seen in ten years. >> thank you. i have a final question for the budget and legislative analyst, if i may, through the chair. mr. rose, you are h

was in today's "c francisco for the top city, i guess doing business, which comes as a surprise to many commenters and somewhat as a surprise to me. we will certainly take it. it might be based upon part of what was written in another article but carl nulte sunday when he talks about the sales force and good things we are seeing. however it was entitled, ignoring a beautiful and ugly city is crazy. i agree with carl. i believe he's made good statements. his comments, not mine, he talked about some of the people on the street. he felt they weren't just foreclosed homeowners but people who have long-term serious problems. yet everybody ignores this, has been for decades. i think he makes good points and ends his article by saying we pretend this doesn't exist. san francisco needs a psychiatrist, which is a well-written article. part of this, there is a positive note, however. there is legislation introduced and i believe passed on first reading to ban our vehicles over night. many are housing unit wes don't deal with. we deal with mergers, decks, a bunch of things that are important. we d
observations as i compared our city attorney's response to the same question, our city attorney said, yes, consumer fraud is committed, you clarified the burden of proof required in the criminal context from my perspective, i think that makes sense, these type of consumer fraud cases are pursued from our civil attorney, i wanted to make that first point, but secondly, i think what ms. crevette was saying, rather than having a surcharge for health care, they broaden that language and said it was a surcharge for the cost of doing business in san francisco, that's a very different set of issues and it might be a set of issue that is we may want to tackle at a later point but it gets us beyond the health care situation, it could be surcharge that businesses justify because of our city's living wage law, sick leave, health care and all the compendium or payroll tax, all of the variety of cost of doing business and this is why i think i understand from what you're saying, that would be harder to prosecute, i completely understand that. we may decide that's a problem, but i think that's what i h

the baltimore city police officers are on suspension after the death of a man in police custody. the medical examiner determined that anthony anderson died of blunt force trauma. his family is calling for murder charges against the police officers who arrested him shortly before he died. we are live a police headquarters with the latest. >> the autopsy concluded that anthony anderson died a violent death, suffering blunt force trauma including broken ribs and a ruptured spleen. his death was ruled a homicide which technically means death at the hands of another person. local activists and relatives of anthony anderson rallied to call for murder charges against three police officers who arrested him on the timber 21st. >> we are calling for murder charges. we are calling for these officers to be fired. an end to their paid vacation at the taxpayers' expense. >> anthony anderson and counted the officers on this make it lot. detectives assigned to the violent crime section reported they moved in to arrest him after they caught him in a drug deal. >> the observed with the expected -- suspected t
, the jury recommends the city totally eliminate hra's in favor of the city option. the jury strongly recommends the city bring an end to the gratuitous practice of allowing business owners to add surcharges for employee mandates to their customer's bills and the jury recommends the district attorney follow through with an investigation to review our survey findings for possible consumer fraud. the promise of the health care security ordinance is to provide health care for workers in san francisco that is easily accessible. health reimbursement accounts do not fulfill this promise. when businesses use the health care surcharge to earn large profits, i must repeat, the public trust is violated. hra's may be technically legal, but are they ethical? we really don't think so. thank you. we'll take any of your questions. >> thank you very much. could you respond to the question that i raised earlier about the fact that this is 2011 data, 2012 data will presumably come out whenever -- you know, next year, and to just respond to the concern that that data is from before the change of law too
.8 million dollars at pier 70 to 2.5 million daly city. presently under sfmta's lease at pier 70 the rental cost for towing and storage operations are fully reimbursed from the license fee charged to auto return. that fee is not anticipated to be increased, sfmta tells us, therefore the increased rental expense is to be borne by the sfmta; in other words, a new expense. according to sfmta prologis moved faster than sfmta to purchase the proposed bayshore site. the sfmta decided to lease with total renter of 70.2 million over the first 20 years. that does not include the two five-year options. such rental costs of 70.2 million exceed the purchase price of 2650 bayshore boulevard, or the price including interest to purchase other comparable properties. they told us they looked at other comparable property. that price exceeds by 34.1 million. so we are talking -- we are looking at a 94.5% more to rent this property than to acquire it. we understand the statement by mr. risken that they were not able to move fast enough. the proposed rent requires 3% annual increases which, to me, is reasonable
staff and the city attorney think of changing the reference to a sunshine ordinance rather than a cpa ordinance? >> i think that falls on the list to look at later. so we can do some background comparison before we make a change. >> okay. anyone have a different view from the staff? or city attorney? >> the definition that we mirrored in 6720-b of what public information is. 720 is broader and it does define what records should be disclosed. i don't know if that's a necessary problem. but again it's something that we can address later if you want. >> mr. shin? >> i don't have much more to add. i am not sure as a practical matter whether using public information very public records is different of how a commission would address a complaint before it. and i would note that sunshine ordinance does use both terms as well. records and information is referred to interchangeably. >> 6720-b of the ordinance directly mirror 6252-e? >> it incorporates and i believe you have it in the page i handed out. in case you need a copy. >> i have 67 -- >> it's actually 6724 that defines what records must
